I've been looking for one, too.

Lubor Fiedler's works very well, but doesn't go far.

What do you mean by 'doesn't go far'?

Just curious.

I believe it was a joke, suggesting the Tenyo flying carpet isn't actually a REAL flying carpet.

Hence, it doesn't go far.

Maybe my joke was just really bad.

Yeah - I was overthinking the joke.

Sine I read somewhere that if you switch the lenses for a different type on these glasses - the image will be clearer.

Or you can use a different type - and whilst the image isn't as clear - the illusion is stronger since the levitation appears to have greater depth.

From what I recall - Lubor went for the ChromaDepth option which allows for a greater depth to the levitation.

[Okay - just looked up the article with relevent info.]

Here is the link. It comes down to whether you use HD or STD ChromaDepth 3D glasses:

I am a huge Lubor Fiedler fan. But - I still haven't opened my Flying Carpet trick! I keep saving it for when I am most indeed of a hit of Fiedler genius. I will probably explore the trick when the 2013 Fiedler trick is released.

Speaking of Lubor Fiedler,
Speaking overthinking something,
Speaking of Richards acerbic wit,

A couple of years ago I asked if anyone knew how I could repair
my Fielder Clock -- The pendilum -- stopped swinging!

Richard hit one out of the park with his reply.

Well, my pendilum still doesn't work, my clocksmith has retired, and I don't have a lot of ticks left, so any "new" suggestions wouldbe appreciated.
